Brittany 1750-1950 Summary


Brittany 1750-1950: The Invisible Nation by Sharif Gemie

Brittany presents a paradox: the region was incorporated into France in 1532, and has never known a substantial nationalist movement. Yet, in recent years, signs of a sense of separation from France are growing clearer. This paradox raises some fundamental questions about the processes of nation formation. This work provides an introduction to identity politics in Brittany, analysing its special status within France: the region forms at once a western border and a potential rival centre to Paris. These themes are explored through a discussion of representations of Brittany: in published forms, such as in literature, in political debates, but also in popular forms such as through religious pardons, through republican festivals and through popular protest.

Brittany 1750-1950 Reviews


'Sharif Gemie both renovates the genre and presents what is without doubt the best English-language work on the Breton question. He innovates by showing that spark of empathy which his predecessors lacked, while remaining lucid and retaining the critical spirit that an in-depth analysis requires.' Ronan Le Coadic, ArMen 168
